I am just unsure how they arrived at the final result.
Total number of votes = 86
Shorten - 55 (63.95%)
Albo - 31 (36.05%)
Total number of votes = 30,426
Shorten = 12,196 (40.08%)
Albo = 18,230 (59.92%)
He won 55 of the 86 votes in caucus – amounting to the support of 63.95 per cent of his colleagues. Combined with the support of 40.08 per cent of the party membership, Mr Shorten prevailed with an overall vote of 52.02 per cent.

It is quite clear that the rank and file members want Albo as the leader but the party machine have given more weight to the Caucus members.
I do not have an issue with the members voting for their leader but I do have an issue with the Caucus vote being weighted more so that whomever the caucus votes for will be the leader.
If they are serious about including the rank and file members then the rank and file vote should be the one that counts.
